We Had No WiFi at Work and It Was the Worst Day of My Life.

This is not an easy topic to write about. It's taken me a while to actually put into words this horrific experience. But if it can help at least one person out there, it will be worth it. A few weeks ago I got to work and I could tell something was amiss. Right away. Because people were conversing with one another. No one was hulled away in their classrooms staring at their laptops. People were in the halls. Communicating. I knew it was going to be bad. But really…

Dear Children, Charge Your Freaking Electronic Devices Before I Lose My Damn Mind

When I buy an electronic device why can't the charger come all assembled with it? Why, Apple, why? Why do we now have to purchase the cube separate from the cable? It's making my life a living hell. We used to have a shortage of cubes. But now we have a shortage of cables. And my kids leaving them behind everywhere we go isn't helping matters. Our house has turned into one giant charging station. We have five kindle fires, one kindle reader, two laptops, three iPhones, one Samsung Galaxy,…

My Thoughts on the Amanda Knox Documentery

I recently watched the Netflix documentary on Amanda Knox. More affectionately known as "Foxy Knoxy". And now I'm convinced she really is innocent. Of murder. But she is totally guilty of committing fashion suicide. The scariest part of the entire documentary was Amanda's lack of make-up. Did she think she was doing a Dove commercial? She didn't have one lick of make-up on. It was appalling. Did she not know she was out of prison and didn't have to look like an inmate anymore? I go to bed with more…

Life Without Cable Is Not Worth Living

About two years ago we cut the cord. The cable cord. We didn't need cable. Our lives were so much more than television. We'd be able to spend more quality time with each other. As a freaking family. Cutting the umbilical cord was easier, but those scissors they use are amazingly sharp. I could use a pair of those in my kitchen I was going to get back to reading every night. Well the nights I didn't drink. So about every other night. But still, this was going to be…

Why Am I So Technologically Challenged?

It's 2016. And I feel like my Dad. Why do I have such a problem with technology? I'm 38. I should be rocking all these modern day advances. But I'm not. Not even close. When I was a kid I knew how to operate that VCR like no one's business. I can remember the pride I saw in my father's eyes when I could put a VHS in and generate a motion picture. I distinctly remember him regaling his friends with stories about how I could "make that machine work''.…

The Kids Are Sick. The Struggle Is Real.

As I have mentioned, I was home for two years with my kids. I did not enjoy it. I was desperate to be out of the house working again. All that being said, the only good thing about being a stay-at-home mom is when your kids get sick. It's the one thing I no longer had to worry about. Beau also had it made with me at home because he never had to take a day off with a sick child or ever give it a second thought. Bless his heart.…

Making of a Stay-At-Home Mom. I Was Steven Avery.

Like 99% of the world, I just finished watching the Netflix documentary, Making of a Murderer. And it has changed my life, obvi. I know what it feels like to be Steven Avery. Having your entire life turned upside down. Having everything you've worked for just ripped away from you. For two years I was held against my will at home by my four kids. I lost a job that I loved and was just sort of forced into being a stay-at-home mom. I was a prisoner in my own home. By no fault of…
